Balochistan has become a black hole for media, we invite media to visit it and find the truth: Akhtar Mengal

In an interview to a private channel, Akhtar Mengal, the leader of his own faction of Balochistan National Party said that Balochistan has become a black hole for media, where news can come but never goes outside, he invited media to visit Balochistan and see the truth themselves.

In reply to a question that Balochistan gets most of the aid and help from federal government and foreign countries but still Baloch people are unsatisfied, Akhtar Mengal said, “It would not be wrong if I call this ‘aid’ as ‘charity’, we do not need any charity, just give us the authority on our resources and we will show you how to give aid to others”.

Talking about the six points, he insisted that the six points are the only way to solve Balochistan issue, he denied that the six points are the only problem in Balochistan but these are the way to solve other problems and build confidence.

When questioned about the bad governance in Balochistan and the poor performance of Baloch leaders themselves who always blame federation, Akhtar Mengal replied that there were no Baloch representatives in the provincial assembly, they all were representatives of the forces that brought them through selection, and you cannot hope good from such people.

Akhtar Mengal is the son of ex-CM Sardar Atta Ullah Mengal who had remained CM until his government was abolished by late Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto.
